1:41 pm
adam: okay. so the entire nation is actually waiting for a decision on the detroit bankruptcy. it has been two weeks since the city's eligibility hearings wrapped up and still no word whether detroit can move forward with its bankruptcy but what are the key decisions that all of us should look for? joining us now to discuss this john pat , professor at the university of michigan law school. thank you for joining us. i think it was the "detroit free press" actually spelled this out
1:42 pm
in six different options. again, everyone is watching this because other municipalities are at least in distress so let's talk about these options. the first one seems to be the most simple, if it is approved they would still perhaps delay a decision over pensions. what does that mean? >> yeah. this is a good question, adam. so i think one of the biggest issues in this bankruptcy is going to be the michigan constitution and the extent which that precludes any adjustment of those pensions. and they came at it full blazing that makes the city ineligible to file for bankruptcy if the plan is to reduce those pensions. the problem with that argument we've seen, this happened out in california where they have a similar law, there is suggestion that's jumping the gun. you can't make the constitutional argument unless and until a plan gets proposed that does in fact cut those pensions. so the pushback is, it is not an eligibility question. it's a plan legitimacy question and the city has said, we're not
1:43 pm
going to put together a plan until december 31st at earliest. so the most contentious issue may very well be punted even if the city is eligible to file for bankruptcy. adam: under option one, they have approved eligibility to file chapter 9. the second issue part of one if they delay the decision on the pension, we're talking about the contract clause of the u.s. constitution which essentially says you can't go backwards and address a contract that has already been made and constitution in michigan says you can't change these deals. >> yeah. the michigan constitution is even stronger. i don't think the federal constitution will put that much pressure on it because the bankruptcy clause is probably okay with that but the michigan constitution is pretty clear that says these are contractual benefits that basically, i'm paraphrasing can not be reduced f that applies to this case, pensions have a legitimate argument, they say, look you can't reduce us in bankruptcy because we have a state constitutional protection. there are a ton of legal arguments. adam: let me interrupt you, in
1:44 pm
rhode island, they could cut it, 55% of the pensions in. extreme other end, option 6. no one expects this, judge rhodes said denied, you can't go through the bankruptcy process. what happens at that point? >> if he boots the case, adam, case is dismissed, appellate rights kick in. they take it up to the appellate chain, whatever happens someone will appeal. whatever the ruling is, someone women appeal. the tougher thing if he lets it go forward, can they appeal. if he denies the case, it ends, you get to appeal, if he allows it to go forward, there is question whether you appeal or wait until the end of the whole case to appeal eligibility. adam: do we get financial armageddon for municipalities nationwide if he denies eligibility? >> if he denies eligibility, there is lot of other cities watching what is it going on, it doesn't really solve anything. you're still left with a city that can't cover checks to make certain payments. you go into a no-man's land of
1:45 pm
negotiations unsupervised by the bankruptcy court. so a dismissal, i'm not sure what happens then. i guess we go, we go into the void if there's a dismissal. adam: there are so many void here. will we finally get some kind of a concrete definition what it means to negotiate in good faith? there are some things we can continue to talk about. i hope we invite you back once we get the decision from judge rhodes which could come at anytime. john, thank you so much for joining us. >> my pleasure, adam. lori: well the oldest underground mass transit system will soon run for 24 hours a day. this is a big move and it is grabbing the attention of those living outside of london. here's why. the online retailer amazon is hoping to cash in on the city's plan to close the current underground ticket offices in 240 stations. amazon right now in talks with london to convert closed ticket offices to 24-hour drop-off points for its good. with new york city subway booths closing down it may be a matter

better when the economy is little slower, we have the market new record seemingly every day and the economy is showing signs of improvement as well? i'm wondering if that is contrarian indicator for you. if things are better than perhaps we'll have softer sales in the new year? >> i think we, again, i think that there's, with our business we look at, at continued to build our business, no matter what the economic period. and, even though the overall industry has been a little bit soft this year, our brand are performing. our business is performing. and we attribute that to, great advertising. extended marketing support. and, great execution by our wholesaler network. lori: i was teasing you about the christmas table because i think you do capture your customer with those ads showing the beaches somewhere. i think that may be, with all of us about to be freezing this thanksgiving they're predicting a nor'easter here in new york over thanksgiving. maybe we are desperate to

2:01 pm
remember the day john f kennedy our 30 fifth president, was assassinated. first the top of the hour and time for stocks now. let's go to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. we do this every 15 minutes. i guess this is the day after we hit 16,000. nice to see it holding. >> it sure is. you know what? we set a record of our own today. yesterday was a record, 16,000, first time we closed above 16,000 ever in history. today a new record for the dow jones industrials as we broke an intraday record. we traded as high as 16,036. a new high there. s&p a fraction from its all-time high. that being said we're seeing drug stocks and banking stocks doing well. the u.s. dollar is pulling back. i do want to get back to herbalife as battle continues. you have bill ackman, who has been very obvious with his, very forthright with his short position on the company and says investors should be troubled about this company. he has been calling herbalife a pyramid scheme. herbalife repeatedly denied it
2:02 pm
does exactly that. feels it has been the target. so you are watching herbalife today. they have been sneaking back. four .25% to the upside. up 116%. back to you. ashley: nicole, thank you very much. as we said at the top of the show, how annoying would be in? the fcc is proposing cell phone conversations being allowed on planes. please tweet us. you already have. your responses will be at the bottom of the screen. cheryl: joining us with her take, department of transportation, mary schiavo. you think the airlines are so good at this would find a way to generate revenue off such of a proposal? >> absolutely. the airlines will generate revenue from both sides of the equation. they will have a quiet zone as they already do on some airlines. you can pay extra to get a seat in the quiet part of the plane. that airline is banning
2:03 pm
children. there will be a section of the plane for phones and a section of the planes for no phones and each will carry a fee with it. vast rest of us will be in the middle somewhere. i think it will be a money-making opportunity. once the faa said cell phones do not pose a danger then the government has no jurisdiction to band them. it will be up to the airlines. they don't have the regulatory authority if it doesn't interfere with the safety of the flight. ashley: mary, the flight attendants union, say quote there are far too many scenarios where in-flight cell phone use would have negative effects on safety and security. is that an issue here? >> well, that is probably from young flight attendants. they're not remembering the olden days of gte air phones, where for exorbitant amount of money could call. a lot of us did. got out of hand or too long or noisy they told you to keep it down. so they managed in the olden days. it cost a lot more money then. but i think they're probably overreacting.
2:04 pm
there will be areas where it is allowed and where it is not and some airlines already said absolutely not. i think it is a mistake because there are times when you really need to make a call. i had a couple of personal crises and couldn't once and on a gte aii phone. i think airlines will take in stride and make more money. cheryl: you have a fair point. the customer has a voice in all of this statements came out from united, southwest, delta, every airline said we have heard overwhelm mingly from the customers they do not want informations happening onboard a flight. emergency situations may be a different thing but airlines are saying their customers are saying 100% do not do this. maybe that is where this goes. >> right. well, that plus, now, you know the business customers might have a different take. from time to time i have to do work on private planes too. there the communication system never stops. you can get on your cell phones and do work, et cetera and i
2:05 pm
think planes will have to address that because there may be a certain section, a segment of business travelers who don't want to be disconnected for eight hours on a flight or for five hours transcon, and those people will opt to have communications if they want to keep working. i think that the people are calling in might be segment who want to nap on planes. there are segment who can't afford to stop working eight hours while they see scenery of fly over country. ashley: i don't know, mary, i could see it being a real bone of contention for passengers if this goes ahead and probably will go ahead because there are those that have different volumes on their voice. they think they're speaking normally and actually screaming into the phone about some inane subject, not just business people in business class that could create some tension, don't you think? >> well, frankly i find the most annoying things on planes are the video games. pong, pong, pong noises. they allow those to go on.
2:06 pm
what will happen there will be a few weeks figure out how this is going to work. then in a couple of months we'll wonder why we were all excited and worried about it. i think it will sort itself out in really quick order and i think they will have no phone zones. ashley: mary, thank you so much. mary seas it is inevitable. i wish it wasn't but i think she is probably right. cheryl: i trust mary's judgment. she always knows what she is talking about and she is right. thank you, mary. i guess you can call this advertising first. british airways is unveiling new digital billboards that interact with their planes flying overhead to remind people about the magic of flying. ashley, i hope you like this. take a look at this. this is london. notice how the child points up airplane and follows above him. flight number, departure city is then shown on the billboard. ashley: wow, that is pretty cool. cheryl: cool. how does this work though? they use surveillance technology and flight schedules to determine a british airways plane flying above billboards.

2:08 pm
enrollment is being improved so that we can deliver on the affordable care act's promise. we believe, that there is time, because of the extensive open enrollment period that is allowed here to make that happen. >> a spokesman for house speaker john boehner writes, quote, it is a transparent attempt to lessen the impending political fallout from this terrible law. meanwhile the administration says it is on track to meet its goals for healthcare.gov by the end of this month. 50,000 simultaneous users they say. officials say the site can currently only handle 25,000 though they're adding more hardware this weekend. republicans point out that promises the administration is on track is the same description officials gave he have about the botched october 1st roleout. back to you. cheryl: rich edson out of washington the thank you, rich. ashley: made in the usa, remember that? ahead we talk with clothing manufacturer who is bringing that label back, making apparel only in california. cheryl: in today's tech minute,
